I have a 6yr old grandson that is all about seal team stuff. I built him a 4X4 board to hang all his guns on in garage. Now he wants a seal team helmet. He is big and has a big head. Cant spend $200 for a helmet. Any ideas. Not close to a good Army surplus place. Also looking for one of those old ar-15 trainer rifles.

Airsoft helmet. Maybe $30-40 with shipping.
Yeah, this is what I was thinking. They make "fake" helmets that look real, just don't stop anything. I knew a guy in the army that bough a PASGT version and put his cover on it and wore it in the field for the better part of the year! Was practically weightless compared to a Kpot.

If you'd hit me up last year, I could have sent you an ACH for next to nothing. But I think you'll want a fake, a real helmet could do damage to a 6yo's neck or spine due to the weight.

FWIW, I kinda grew up like your grandson. I was into army everything when I was that age. LOVED going to surplus stores.

Just get him a pair of jean shorts.
Classic. And a pair of fins and a dive knife. Don't forget the watch.

I was thinking you could teach him how to write self serving books with those jean shorts.

In all honesty probably the best thing you can do is introduce him to physical adversity and build up a cache of stubborn. You just gotta take it slow - too much adversity and you can get whacked by the state nannys. Way too much adversity and they can find the both of you frozen solid in an ice floe in 2000 years.
